GAHANNA, Ohio - October 12, 2020 - (Newswire.com)
Dr. Benjamin Ogbonna, a practicing obstetrician and gynecologist, a published author of reputable international journals in obstetrics and gynecology, and a naturalized United States citizen from Nigeria, has completed his new book “Growing Up in Africa”: an enthralling narrative of the author’s challenging life and his miraculous triumph by achieving his dream of becoming a doctor.
Ogbonna writes, “This book is about a man who had a dream at a very tender age and lived the dream despite all the odds that were stacked against him. With his missionary parents, working in remote parts of Nigeria in the fifties, a period where basic amenities were not available, the dream could have been described as a ‘pipe dream.’ Despite several episodes of events that could pass as miraculous and near-death situations, the writer marched on undaunted.
"A ferocious civil war that claimed the lives of several of his friends did not deter him having survived it. A mouth-watering job opportunity with Caritas International at the end of the civil war for food distribution was rejected because it was considered likely to interfere with the opportunity of achieving the dream of becoming a doctor.
"Right from childbirth, children show certain traits which ultimately determine what they grow up to become. It is the responsibility of parents therefore to show interest in the development of their children and to guide them all along the way towards achieving their destiny.
"This responsibility should on no account be left at the discretion of teachers, especially during the early formative years. The intense pressure and demands of modern life should on no account be an excuse to abandon this important parental duty.
"My parents featured prominently in this book, and I owe my success in life to them.”
